Jupiter/Uranus and the Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb
You know how the combination of Jupiter with Uranus represents, on one level, light bulbs, both electrically and new-idea-wise, and how the two 'light bulb planets' of inventions and discoveries meet three times this year beginning with a first Great Conjunction on June 8, 2010 @ 00Ari18?
So can Jupiter/Uranus bring bad things to light?
Well, I think it's interesting that reports now surface saying that using those swirly Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFL) may not be such a 'bright idea' after all. And since Uranus-to-Aries-Point is a significator for 'scientific breakthroughs', their combined spotlight of energies may also relate to new discoveries concerning older 'new' inventions such as the CFL.
Peep-eye, further testing! Upon second thought, General Electric! You certainly pushed the use of CFL upon the public forcefully as if they were environmentally an improvement over regular light bulbs, US government! Yet CFL are full of toxic mercury, too!
Actually, Jupiter and Uranus remain @ 00Ari18 (conj Aries Point, a World Point of manifestation and prominence) in Washington DC for 3 hours 3 minutes on June 8, 2010, from 6:57 am edt until 10:00 am edt. Here's the schedule:
6:57 am edt: ASC 3Can59 with US natal Venus rising and our natal Jupiter in tow; MC 12Pis34 with the Great Conjunction of Jup/Uran beginning in 10th house and ending in 9th house (conjunct 9th cusp 29Pis49). They will, in tandem, cross Midheaven during their celestial tango which results in a temporary midpoint picture...
Jupiter/Uranus = MC: optimism; a fortunate turn in life. (Ebertin.) This picture echoes their June 8, 2010 Great Conjunction which opposes US natal MC 00Lib53 in America's 'Sibly' chart.
So while Jupiter and Uranus are docked together in June @ AP, the Moon ranges from 27Ari29 (11th house) to 29Ari06 (29 being a 'crisis' or 'impatient' degree) in 9th house, yet conjunct MC 1Tau59. Transit Venus 23Can13 (beginning in 1st house, ending in 12th) conjoins US natal Mercury, a time of good news, cordial business and community activities, and successful public relations.
And for those 3 hrs 3 mins, the Sun begins @ 17Gem33 in 12th house, ends @ 17:41 in 11th house with ASC 11Leo51, conj President Obama's natal Sun. This is the Venus Transit degree (17Gem53) of June 8, 2004 which occurred during the G-8 Summit on Sea Island, GA...that very weekend.
Curiously back then, Jupiter 10Vir37 and Uranus 6Pis48 were in opposition and forming a T-Square with apex Mercury in Mercury-ruled Gemini @ 5Gem30...
Jupiter/Uranus = Mercury: gathering ample knowledge; a fortunate occupational change; planning on success; a series of fortunate breaks; thinking about the need for changes and how you can affect them.
And affect them the behind-the-scenes power elite and their public faces (aka 'world leaders') have.
Or, perhaps someone simply changed a newly invented, if over-touted, light bulb.
